Calliper recall
« on: September 25, 2020, 01:13:45 PM »
Just got my S1000XR 2 weeks ago. Took it in for it’s 1000km service and I find out there is a recall, and it  wasn’t done before purchasing the bike.

What is the issue with the callipers? And do you think its ok to ride it with out the recall completed.

I love this bike, but I will admit I’m a little disappointed. Never had these issues with my Japanese motorcycles...

I read somewhere probably on here that some callipers on the 2020 models can leak/weep. Obviously if yours are in the leaking category your dealer would not have let you ride away. I would want reassurance from them the bike is safe to ride so a quick call to the dealer should answer your question.

Dealer said it would be ok to ride but keep an eye on it and check it daily.

Guess I’m just a little disappointed with the dealer as it should have been done before the bike left the showroom.

Parts are to be in next week, and I already rode a 1000 km like this, so I’m going to take it easy (if I can lol) and go for a ride. 

Also an abrasive recall? Something about a line rubbing on the frame? Apparently not serious but it needs attention.

Wonder if the "abrasive recall" is the clutch cable rubbing on the back of the radiator fins?

That was the case on mine, but I fixed it myself. Don't know is there any official recall for clutch cable, but I would really love to know what that "abrasive recall" really is.

Re the callipers, it's a never ending saga since 2019 when they first fitted Hayes callipers on a GS1250. They leak oil on some bikes.
However, I heard that they solved the problem and started fitting revised callipers on bikes produced from May 2020. If the last 7 digits of your VIN start with "6D", you should be fine.

Bike is going in this week for both recalls.

I will update the forum on what exactly the abrasive recall is.
